If you live alone and have either a high temperature or a new continuous cough, do not leave your home for 7 days. If you live with other people, keep them at home for 14 days. To check if you need medical help, use the 111 coronavirus service. Only

Over the Counter Medication

Please note NHS England has published guidance to GP prescribers to NOT routinely prescribe over the counter medicines for common conditions. 

 

Please see the poster for these common conditions in the 'our Documents' Section of our website- so that you can obtain these medicines over the counter at the pharmacy or supermarket pharmacies. 

COVID 19 'MEDICAL SICK CERTIFICATION' FOR PATIENTS

The current Government Guidance for employers and businesses on coronavirus (COVID-19) states;

“By law, medical evidence is not required for the first 7 days of sickness. After 7 days, employers may use their discretion around the need for medical evidence if an employee is staying at home.

We strongly suggest that employers use their discretion around the need for medical evidence for a period of absence where an employee is advised to stay at home either as they are unwell themselves, or live with someone who is, in accordance with the public health advices issued by the government.”

Until further guidance is available, Londonwide LMCs would suggest that if needed by patients they use this letter as the practice will not provide a medical certificate for patients requiring self-isolation for coronavirus.

 

 

Please do not call the surgery to request a sick note, this is available for you to download from the 'Our Documents' section on the left hand side of this page where you can complete the form and hand to your employers. 

 

The lead partners are: Dr Thillainathan & Dr Nagulesan

Coronavirus outbreak FAQs: what you can and can't do

Published 29 March 2020

Childhood Immunisations

Speak to your GP surgery if:

  • you think you or your child have missed any vaccinations
  • you or your child have a vaccination appointment – but you've missed it or cannot attend

We can book or rearrange the next available appointment, these appointments are being given as face to face at the practice once the screening of the household has taken place over the telephone.

 

If anyone in the household is having COVID 19 symptoms please do not book this appointment until everyone is well and recovered from such symptoms. 

 

It’s best to have vaccines on time, but you can still catch up on most vaccines if you miss them.

Weekly Coronavirus Update- IMPORTANT


Coronavirus Update: Please go to the practice website for weekly updates; www.arnosgrovemedicalcentre.nhs.uk

The practice leadership team met on Monday 16.03.2020 to discuss the ongoing coronavirus situation. We have considered the current risk to our patients and have concluded:

High Risk - Team members unable to support patients due to being placed in self isolation following exposure to an unconfirmed case of coronavirus.

High Risk - Increased demand for appointments from those concerned they might have coronavirus.

Moderate Risk - Patients who have a need other than suspected coronavirus struggling to contact the practice.

Low Risk - Increased number of patients of have coronavirus symptoms requiring a primary care appointment.

Low Risk - High numbers of "at risk" patients with coronavirus requiring a primary care appointment.


To enable the best possible care we are making the following changes effective from Monday 16th March 2020:

1) All patients with coronavirus symptoms will be asked to use the 111 online tool (https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19) or to call 111.

2) A text message will be sent to all patients with a pre-booked appointment asking them to call us so that you can be telephoned screened prior to coming into the practice at least an hour before your appointment.  Symptoms are fever, cough or shortness of breath, flu-like illness, body aches & looking and feeling generally unwell.

3) All patients that require a future appointment with the GP at the practice will undergo a telephone screening from the clinical team before a face to face appointment is confirmed, you will not be seen without being telephone screened.

4) We will not be booking any further face to face appointments until you are screened to protect both patients and staff for the time being.


5) Online booking of appointments will not be accepted until further notice.


Our objective is to deliver the care our patients need whilst minimising those patients who need to attend the practice face to face. This being the case, please do not attend the practice in person unless you already have appointment.

We anticipate that although over time a high percentage of our patients may well become infected, many of them will be able to self-care from the safety of their own home. We will work to make our service as available as possible to those patients who are unable to self-care and will need additional support from the practice. As the number of infected patients increase we will work to segregate those who need care for coronavirus and those who require care for another reason.

We ask all of our patients to continue to observe advice around handwashing and self-isolation. This will help to protect the most vulnerable in our community.
